Being Woman is entirely run by volunteers, who generously donate their time and skills each year to birth and hold the Gathering.
Our facilitators donate their time & services free of charge to support our Gathering. In addition, our facilitators also purchase their own attendance ticket, to support the cost of their food & accommodation during the Gathering.
We also receive help and support from individuals and businesses in the form of items being donated toward our Silent Auction, held at our Gathering each year. The monies raised support our annual Scholarship Attendance Program.
We would like to thank the Queensland Government and YWCA Queensland for their generous community grant towards our Being Woman Gatherings.
We also invite community members to make donations. Your donations support Indigenous (Original) women in our community to attend and participate as our guests. They also support our Scholarship Attendance Program for women who may be experiencing financial hardship or other challenges. If you would like to make a donation towards this, or support Being Woman in general, we would be infinitely grateful.
